From life to life eternal Dr. Horace Reed, one of 
the most distinguished and most widely known 
ministers of the Methodist Episcopal Church, pass- 
ed at noon on Sunday November the fifteenth. 

In 1895 Dr. Reed was named a trustee of Illinois 
Woman's College and for nearly twenty years he 
was intimately associated with its administration. 
He rejoiced in its progress and was watchful for 
opportunity in finding* friends who would aid in its 

As a minister and leader in church activities Dr. 
Reed served as pastor of many larg-e churches in 
the conference, and in the cities where his work 
was appointed he never failed to manifest a breadth 
of intrest that extended beyond the bounds of his 
parish and enlisted his service in all that pertained 
to the welfare of the community life. 

During* the recent session of Illinois Conference 
at Shelby ville Dr. Reed in compliance with an invita- 
tion extended to him celebrated his g-olden anniver- 
sary in the ranks of the ministry by preaching* a 
special sermon, which was g*iven with the power 
and vig-or characteristic of his discourse. And thus, 
with a well rounded life of nearly seventy four 
years, his course has been run and from his co-labor- 
ers and from the Lord whom he served he receives 
the <4 Well done"of his finished course.

During the last month events have rapidly taken place 
which will go down in the records of the college. We 
have been pushing forward to a fuller college life with 
rapid strides. The length and meaning of these strides 
no one can fully realize. The withdrawal of the charter 
of the College Council, the granting of a charter to the 
Student's Association, and the adoption of the constitu- 
tion of the new association have rapidly followed one 
after the other. 

The formation of this largest of all organizations, 
made possible by the earnest endeavor of the trustees and 
faculty to co-operate with. the students for the highest de- 
velopment of all, gives us opportunity to stretch out and 
develop to an untold extent. It means a bigger college 
and, above all, bigger students. However, in our en- 
thusiasm for doing things, we must not forget the big prin- 
ciple of co-operation. The granting of this charter to us 
does not mean that we have been given the right to "run 
things.'' We cannot succeed if we take this attitude and 
try to work against the faculty. Only when we realize 
that because of their sympathy with us and their desire to 
co-operate with us did the faclulty make this possible for 
us, will we be able to accomplish the bigger things. 
Therefore, let us take co-operation as our watchword!

Wht College (greeting* 


A year and a half ago, March 5, 1913, it was my 
pleasure and privilege to inaugurate Student Government 
in the College by the organization of the College Council. 
I regarded that as one of the most important events of my 
entire college administration. It was my joy to see that 
it was also appreciated by both faculty and students. 

An Editorial in the College Greetings at the time ex- 
pressed so clearly the spirit of both faculty and students, 
that I cannot do better than quote it at length: 

"College spirit has been the goal for which we have 
striven for several years, but not until we as a student body 
could sacrifice something, could do something bigger than 
we had yet done, something that made us forget self for 
the time, did the college spirit come. The interest and 
feeling of the past month when we have been giving all 
our thoughts and time to endowment has brought us all 
to a clearer realization of our latent loyalty. Our ideals 
must now be to keep the current of our enthusiasm in the 
right direction. The loyalty and enthusiasm we have 
shown for endowment, a temporary interest, must now be 
shown for the College as a college. " 

Nothing has given me more pleasure and more hope 
for the future or the College than the increasing loyalty 
all the students have shown in everything pertaining to 
college advancement. You have shown yourselves eager 
and yet thoughtful to share in college responsibilities and 
keenly alert to the higher college interests and to college 

It is therefore a delight to me to say this morning that 
the experiment in student government, begun by the or- 
ganization of the College Council, has fully met our ex- 
pectations. You have shown yourselves worthy of the 
confidence reposed in you. 

The College Council has done its work well and has 
advanced every interest for which it was organized. Es- 
pecially it has unified all college activities, it has promoted

college spirit, it has conserved college loyalty and enthu- 
siasm, and it has stood for the highest ideals of honor and 
true womanliness. Under its guidance a still better or- 
ganization has been worked out, and at its suggestion, I 
now have the honor to present to you a charter for a Stu- 
dents' Association, and as soon as the new association is 
formed and the officers elected and installed, the College 
Council, having finished its work, its charter will be with- 
drawn at its own request and it will cease to be. 

The following resolution was unanimously adopted by 
the College Council at a meeting held October 29th: 

"In view of the fact that a Students' Association is 
about to be organized, with power to control all student 
activities, the Council feels that the work for which it was 
organized can be carried on much more efficiently by the 
proposed organization. The Council heartily endorses 
this larger movement, and would suggest to President 
Harker that, with the installation of the officers of the 
new association, the work of the Council be considered 
complete, and that the charter granted to it be with- 

(Signed) Alma B. Weber. 

Secy. Pro tern. 

I regard the granting of this charter as one of the 
crowning acts of my administration as President and this 
day, October 30th, 1914, as one of the red letter days in 
the history of the College. I congratulate the entire body 
of students on the honor conferred upon them by trustees 
and faculty in the granting of this new charter, and confi- 
dently believe that you will exercise your new powers and 
duties with womanly thoughtfulness and with increasing 


On Thursday morning, Nov. 12, 1914, a mass meet- 
ing was held which is one to be remembered. At this

meeting the constitution and by laws of the Students' As- 
sociation were read. Article by article it was adopted 
with few objections, which showed good hard work by the 
constitution committee, which consisted of Feril Hess, 
Helen Dinsmore, May Bigger and Ruth Want, assisted by 
the Faculty Student Government committee made up of 
Miss Mothershead, Miss Neville, and Miss Jennie Ander- 
son. The constitution has been under way practically all 
fall and great care was taken to make it cover our par- 
ticular needs. 

This formation of ourselves into an organized body is 
really a wonderful sign of our awakening latent ability. 
Nothing that has ever been done by us as students has had 
such deep, sincere significance as this organization. It 
gives to our college life a new purpose and deeper mean- 
ing. To be a success it must mean that we as students 
are united by a feeling of "altogetherness" that goes over 
and beyond the bonds of class or society. Let it never be 
said of us, "Yes, they have a Students' Association, but it 
isn't a success." We of the middle west are criticised for 
indifference of action and opinion. Every man cannot 
light the fuse of the cannon, but dozens can carry ammu- 
nition to be shot off. Apply the figure to yourself and re- 
port for duty. 

We are indebted to the trustees, the President, and the 
faculty for our liberal charter. With sincerity of purpose 
and loyalty to the College, we pledge ourselves to prove 
that we are worthy of the rights granted us therein. 

On November 19th and 20th the following officers of 
the executive board were elected by the entire student 
body as the constitution of the Students' Association re- 

President — Feril Hess. 

Vice-President — Audrey Berryman. 

Secretary — Ruth Harper. 

Treasurer — Ruth Want.

A happy family of pumpkins lived in one of the many 
shocks of corn that dotted Farmer Brown's fields. How- 
ever, they were not to live there always, for one day about, 
two weeks before Thanksgiving Farmer Brown and his 
hired men drove into the fields and loaded this family with 
all of their neighbors into huge wagons. While many 
were taken to town and sold, this family and a few rela- 
tives were placed in the spacious cellar of the farm house. 

Father and Mother Pumpkin with all the aunts and 
uncles were the first to be laid on the floor, then came the 
cousins and the children and on the very top was little 
Tommy Pumpkin. They were not as comfortable as 
they had been in the corn shock, but they soon became ac- 
customed to their new surroundings and were quite happy. 
The conversation among the apples and nuts was par- 
ticularly interesting to them. It was all about Thanks- 
giving. "What does Thanksgiving mean?" they asked 
eagerly and although the apples and nuts tried to explain 
to them, all the information they could obtain was a very 
confused jumble of ideas about company, turkeys, pies, 
cranberries, cakes and good times. Now that their curi- 
osity had been aroused, they asked question of everyone, 
but received no satisfactory answers. 

The day before Thanksgiving, Mrs. Brown came into 
the cellar with little Dickie Brown. After filling several 
pans with apples, nuts and vegetables, she turned to the 
pumpkins and picked out several of the aunts and uncles 
saying, "I think these will make very nice pies for Thanks- 
Page Seven

giving dinner." Pointing to little Tommy she added, 
"Dickie, you may take that little one up to make a jack-o- 
lantern for the table." 

The pumpkins were carried up a long dark flight of 
stairs till they were brought into the sunny farmhouse 
kitchen. There the aunts and uncles were soon made into 
lovely golden pies and placed on the pantry shelf. 

It was here Tommy found them later, at first they did 
not recognize him for great pieces were missing in his 
sides and his internal structure was completely demolished. 
They spent that day and night in a frenzy of excitement. 

At last the great day came. Tommy was soon taken 
from the shelf and placed in the center of a long, long 
table. There he could watch everything because he had 
eyes now, thanks to Dickie Brown. From this favorable 
position he saw the guests come and then the dinner as it 
was served. After what seemed a long time the pies were 
brought on. Tears came into his eyes as he watched his 
aunts and uncles disappear. 

When the people had gone, Dickie took Tommy down 
in the cellar and placed him near his mother and father 
saying, "I think it's a shame Cousin Fred couldn't he here 
today. I'll save this until he comes so he can see It" 
Tommy was very glad to be home once more. He spent 
days relating his impressions of the feast and answering 
the innumerable questions asked by his curious relatives.

What a glorious morning it was! One of those rare, 
beautiful mornings of early November that is almost in- 
describable to those who do not live in this climiate. The 
air, so different from that of the congested city, was 
fresh and full of fragrance caught up from the verdure of 
Mother Earth. The cows in the nearby pastures, yet wet 
with the night's heavy dew and the white and black wooly

sheep in the distance were standing with heads erect, nos- 
trils dilated as if they, too, were at every breath filling their 
lungs with the cool Autumn air. The big red sun had just 
made its appearance. It stood at a standstill on the 
horizon as if it were waiting for the stars to make a hasty 
retreat. The eastern sky was ablaze with the red, yellow, 
pink, lavender and gray rays of the sun while the other 
part of the heavens was as blue as turquoise, with a few 
small stars here and there. The tall trees, which on 
every side touched the sky, were strikingly beautiful in 
their new brilliant clothes. The dew-covered pastures 
dotted here and there with shrubs were even more beauti- 
ful than in the summer. There was nothing to mar the 
beauty or stillness of the morning. An occasional cock- 
a-doodle-doo or the sweet trilling of a song bird were the 
only signs of life. As I looked upon the sleeping world 
from my little twelve-paned farmhouse window I won- 
dered that it was my first realization of the beauty of 
things about us.

"Oh dear, let's do have something different this year, 
Jane. I'm dreadfully tired of the same old kind of Hal- 
lowe'en party. A few stalks of corn propped lamely 
around the walls of the old barn, several jack-o-lanterns 
sputtering and smoking and the fortune-telling games we 
have played for ten years ! For myself, I intend to let my

ears listen to any whispering new ideas," said Eleanor. 
Then she and her chum chatted gaily on to other subjects. 
The next day as Eleanor was walking briskly down 
the leaf-strewn country road, her idea came and whispered 
in her ear. Why not have a party right out in the field? 
The corn wigwams, the bright bonfires, the rising moon 
would make the loveliest Autumn setting. And besides, 
what a novelty it would be to send out invitations read- 
ing: "Please come to my field party on All Hallowe'en's 
Eve." Jane approved, so merrily began the planning 
of games, the creation of pies, and the sculpture of pump- 
kins, and Eleanor was happy in her new idea. 

At the mystic hour of midnight on the next-to-the-last 
of the beautiful days of the most beautiful of fall months, 
with a gentle flutter and rustle, out from the dozens of 
wigwams dotting the cornfield, came the little wee people 
dancing. But their happiness changed to consternation 
when they saw the unlit bonfires and the mutilated pump- 
kins. Then their dainty little queen, seated in majesty 
upon a golden maple leaf, gathered her subjects about 

"Our place of revels has been desecrated," said the 
tiny, dignified prime minister. "The thoughtless mortals 
plan to have it for themselves tomorrow eve, the only day 
of the year on which we may hold court before the hour 
of midnight. How wicked of them to take this spot, sa- 
cred to us at this one time of the year, since time im- 
memorial ! Oh, queen, let us teach them a lesson." And 
at once the whole concourse agreed. 

Hallowe'en came, Eleanor and Jane and their friends 
gathered at the field, and fun ran high. But what pos- 
sessed things? The lovely dry leaves burned brightly, 
but marshmallows would not toast. "Pop!" they would 
go, and fall into the fire. Apples took to themselves 
wings and flew away into dark corners, and if an unwary 
hand attempted to pursue them, what hordes of tiny briers 
pricked it! Eleanor, sitting propped up against a corn- 
shock, was tormented by tiny, fluttering sounds, and now

and again some invisible creature tickled her ear. She 
thot she could catch faint echoes of whispering voices, 
and yes, she was sure, every time she felt of her ear, a 
suspicion of a mocking laugh came from the blade of corn 
above her head. Such mysterious performances got on 
here nerves, and when she proposed a sing in the near-by 
home, the rest of the crowd seemed glad. As they trooped 
out of the field and up the road, they might have seen the 
happy, little, wee people dancing and prancing gleefully 
around the deserted merrymaking place. Eleanor and 
her new ideas bothered them no more. 

Helen McGhee, '16. 


It was a glorious company in motley array that gath- 
ered in the old chapel on Hallowe'en evening in response 
to an invitation given by the College Specials. Here be- 
fore witches, gobblins, ghosts, bandits, and many other 
characters, all became interested in "The Fate of Every 
Girl/' which was cleverly given. In seven acts were pre- 
sented the charm of infancy; childhood days; when big 
dolls figured most prominently; school days, with its 
skates and apples; sweetheart days accompanied by 
candy, special deliveries, and a diamond ring; the joy of 
the wedding day; home-sweet-home; and in the dim 
candle light, the approach of old age. 

From the chapel, all proceeded to the post office, 
where much merriment was aroused by the messages 
each received from the Hallowe'en Prophet. 

In the society halls, yawning faces of pumpkins and 
demons held sway over the imitation of I. W. C.'s new 
victrola. The delicacies of pumpkin-pie-tarts and fruit 
punch added much to the pleasure of the occasion. 


"Ladies and gentlemen! Please give your whole and

undivided attention to the great circus procession which is 
now going to pass before you. First marches the band, 
grand, gorgeous, and gaudy; lumbering closely behind, the 
elephants, monstrous and magnanimous; following the 
elephants a terrifying, trembling train of tigers snapping 
their jaws at friends and foes alike; in great cages long, 
lengthy giraffes, lordly looking lions, babbling babboons, 
obnoxious ormithorehyuchi, prickly porcupines, ravenous 
rhinoceroses, lumbering leopards, and rampant rolbucks; 
and now, ladies and gentlemen frisking, frolicking toward 
you a marvelous display of those foolish fellows we call 
clowns; then lovely ladies enrapturing, enticing, and en- 
chanting mounted on black and white palfreys that prance 
impatiently while the bewitching beaming riders blush on 
everyone. Remember, ladies and gentlemen, before you 
moves the greatest show on earth !"

One of the most vital characteristics of the German 
people is their love of formalities, which regulates even 
the most personal details of their daily life. Not only in 
the cities, but even in the smallest departure. No elevator 
may be in use, unless it be examined at fixed intervals. 
These and similar laws, in fact, all tend to realize the Ger- 
man ideal of government, which strives to make order a 
citizen's first duty, or to express this thought in the 
Kaiser's own words: "Ordnung ist die erste Buerger- 

It is therefore not surprising that really important 
questions, such as the education of the young, are regu- 
lated with the utmost care. Three months before a 
child's sixth birthday the Ministry of Culture notifies the 
parents that their boy or girl must attend school at the be- 
ginning of the next semester. The first move to matricu- 
late, therefore, is made not by the father or mother, but by 
the schoolboard in behalf of each child in the Empire. 
The parents then take their small son or daughter to see 
the principal or "Direktor" of one of the schools in the 
district in which they are taxpaying members. The neces- 
sary factor in this enrollment is to have the child's birth 
and vaccination certificates, and, if he be of Christian par- 
entage his "Taufschein" or minister's statement of bap- 
tism. After this interview the child is matriculated in the 
school, although his work does not begin until the com- 
mencement of the next term, whether it be Easter or 
Michaelmas. This is the case in all public schools. It is 
also a universal regulation that no student over twelve 
years of age can matriculate in a city or state institution, 
unless he has been vaccinated for the second time. 

The "Volksschulen" or free public schools even en- 
gage a physician to perform this operation in case the 
pupils cannot afford to have it done at home. To ma- 
triculate in these schools no examination is required, the 
child is merely obliged to show his most recent "Zeugnis," 
which is a certificate of his previous work.

For admission to the "Hoehere Toechter Schulen," 
which are girls' school for the higher classes, and to the 
"Gymnasia," however, a very rigid examination is de- 
manded, even if the prospective student is leaving one 
public school to enter another merely perhaps on account 
of his father's change of residence. These matriculation 
examinations even for the very young children are very se- 
vere and complicated and for more advanced pupils they 
usually cover a period of at least five days and are most 
exacting. The student writes a theme, translations from 
the Latin, Greek, English, French or which ever lan- 
guages his specific course may require, and given a number 
of mathematical problems to solve. If the average of 
these written examinations are marked IV. or V., which 
is equivalent to our 60 per cent and less the pupil is not 
permitted to take the oral examinations. If they are III. 
or above, however, he takes his "Muendliche Pruefung" 
and his parents are notified by the government whether he 
of these examinations deviate slightly in the different 
of these examinations leviate slightly in the different 
kingdoms, grand duchies and duchies of the Empire, but 
the general regulations are carried out with equal exacti- 
tude in Prussia, Saxe- Weimar or Anhalt. 

Thus when his subjects matriculate in school in their 
infancy, William II. has seen to it that accuracy is planted 
in their young minds, so that they may grow up to be more 
valuable members of his community in general and better 
soldiers in particular.

At a mass meeting Tuesday morning, November 10, 
the Athletic Association adopted its new constitution. The 
main distinguishing point are: First, the athletic staff, 
which includes the executive committee and a representa- 
tive from each class is to supervise all enterprises for the 
promotion of athletic spirit and interest and control all

matters not otherwise provided for; second, the awarding 
of trophies and honors to those winning first place in track 
events, to those girls making college teams and show- 
ing especial ability in the sport or event in which they par- 
ticipate; third, a provision stating that only those who 
have paid their dues are members. 

At the same meeting the association voted to put in 
a hard tennis court which is to cost $150. The court is 
to be a gravel one on a bed of cinders. We congratulate 
ourselves on this step as it is something we have been try- 
ing to do for several years. We can certainly prophecy 
the liveliest tennis tournament next spring that has ever 
occurred on our campus. 

Y. W. C. A. NOTES. 

The Geneva meeting held October 22nd was very in- 
teresting. The girls who had the privilege of going to 
the summer conference told of the beautiful camp in its 
appeal to the physical as well as to the spiritual nature. 

The association had the great pleasure of having Miss 
Corbett, the field secretary, as a guest for a few days. 
She had charge of the meeting for November 1st. The 
subject was "A Bigger View." She gave the members a 
wealth of information on the splendid equipment, in of- 
fices and office force that the Y. W. C. A. has. How 
great the work really is and how valuable was forcibly 
brought out. We cannot help feeling proud that we have 
a part in this great organization. 

Another treat came November 8th when Miss Olm- 
sted, the city's visiting nurse, told the association of her 
work. Much interest was aroused in the open air school 
and pledges have been made to help in buying the equip- 

The meeting for November lSth, 'The Rogues Gal- 
lery of the New Testament" was well conducted. Helen

The association received a letter from Miss Coppock, 
our Y. W. C. A. Student Secretary of Shanghai, China, 
which reads like a fairy story. Se tells of the school over 
there and its great work, adding bits of information about 
the customs and manners of the people that make it worth 
reading. Any one interested will find the letter on file 
in the association room. 

The attitude of all the girls toward the Week of 
Prayer was beautiful. The great crisis which all Chris- 
tian enterprises abroad are facing today was the theme 
for the prayers and is one that touches a responsive chord 
in every Christian heart. Every corridor is commended 
for its good attendance. 

The Association Monthly will be found on the maga- 
zine rack of the library. Do not fail to read it. Time is 
limited but one must not fail to keep in touch with the 
great movements of our association. In the November 
issue are articles on India, and China, and an especially in- 
teresting one on "War Times and Our Secretaries. 
Abroad.'' It shows the effect of war on the work of the 
association all over the world. 

The annual Christmas bazaar will be held December 
10th. Many useful and pretty Christmas gifts will be on

Cards were received by the friends of Francis Free- 
man announcing her marriage on the fourth of December 
to Mr. DeWitt T. Hartwell. They will be at home after 
the first of January at Marian, 111. Miss Freeman gradu- 
ated in the Home Economics department with the class of 
1913 and taught last year at Marian. 

At the home of Mrs. Edward Lambert Clifford in 
Evanston, 111., on October 17, an afternoon was held

tion. This was the semi-annual meeting of the associa- 
tion and was a social rather than a business meeting. 
About twenty-three were present although it was a rainy 
afternoon. Mrs. E. C. Fready is president of the associa- 
tion and Miss Clara Allan, who is a teacher in the Engle- 
wood High School, is secretary and treasurer. Miss 
Emma Mott, who has been doing fine work for a number 
of years as the director of the art department in the public 
schools of Chicago was also there. Among other guests 
were Miss Celia Cathcart and Laura Bannister, former 
students of I. W. C. 

During the last month a meeting of the Woman's 
Home Missionery Society of the Illinois Conference was 
held in Jacksonville. Mrs. Anna Stoward, who is presi- 
dent and Mrs. Lillian Griffith are both daughters of I. W. 
C. Among the delegates to the convention were quite a 
number of former students and also mothers of the present 

Mrs. Emma Graves Perkins of the class of 75 spent 
a few days in Jacksonville last week. She was returning 
to her home in San Francisco after attending the National 
Executive meeting of the Woman's Home Missionary So-

efficient officers. She is chairman of the Bureau of Ori-

An item in the Northwestern Christian Advocate men- 
tioned the marriage of Miss Ruth Randle to Mr. Everett 
Warner. Mrs. Warner's mother was Mary Stookey, a 
member of the class of '76. Mrs. Randle's home is now 
in Springfield. 

The following taken from a letter written by Eliza- 
beth Dunbar, '13, assistant principal of the High School 
at Raymond, 111., did our hearts good: "I can't get along 
without our little paper for it keeps me in touch with the 
college as I can do in no other way. I am putting it on

bringing some girls to the college.'' 


Lambda Mu held an informal reception at the Colonial 
Inn November 14th, and altogether, there were about 
forty members and friends who enjoyed the evening to- 
gether. In the dining room a color scheme of pink and 
white was carried out; pink Killarney roses, the society 
flower, were much in evidence. In the receiving line 
were Miss Mothershead; Miss Neville; Mary Louise Wit- 
beck, president of the society; Helen Dewitt, vice presi- 
dent; and Wylma Cox, secretary. 

Among the out of town guests were Homer Wherley 
of Astoria, Fred Walker and James Rowland or Rushville, 
Ray Stickel of Greenfield, Alfred Cox of Murrayville, 
Charles Stewart of Urbana, and Mr. and Mrs. Olney Wit- 
beck of Belvidere, and Roy Ousley of Brocton. 


The "cozy" held in the hall last month was a fine 
success. A number of our former members were there 
and it is hoped that they will come often. Refreshments 
were served and it was not until the dinner bell rang that 
anyone realized that the afternoon was gone. We left 
with a feeling of reluctance saying what a cozy time we 
had had at this first "cozy" and looking forward to the one 
on November 19. 

Two quarts of cream could not be allowed to go to 
waste simply because they were not taken to the picnic so 
the society bought them at reduced rates and the plans for 
a pan-cake breakfast were made. Such panccakes! 
None ever tasted better and they disappeared even faster 
than hot cakes usually do. Long before eight o'clock 
the last scrap had vanished and even the tantalizing odor

was gone from the halls. We hope we can again indulge 
in "the cakes that Margaret made." 

The annual Thanksgiving banquet is to take place at 
the Colonial Inn on the 28th of November. There will 
be a number of guests, former members of Phi Nu, whom 
we will be especially glad to see. This is always the 
great event of the society year. 


The Belles Lettres library is now being catalogued. 
Faculty and students will be welcome to use these books. 

Word has been received of the death of Genevieve 
Dague's father on October 30 in San Antonio. The fun- 
eral was held in Danville, Mr. Dague's old home. 

Several of last year's Belles Lettres girls were 
Woman's College visitors at Thanksgiving time. 

Miss Irene McCullough spent the Hallowe'en week 
end with Alma Harmel and Margaret Coultas. 


The life and novels of Bjournstjerne Bjournsen, the 
emminent Norwegian author, are to form what promises 
to be a very interesting course of study for the next two 
months. Book reviews of two, "Arne" and "Mary" have 
proven to be exceptionally interesting. Bjournsen, who 
received the noble prize in 1911, has written many novels, 
which are worthy of more consideration than our modern 
authors, as a rule, obtain. 

A very entertaining feature of one meeting was the 
answering of roll call by limericks. 



There have been a number of visitors this month: 
Mrs. Loveless, Mrs. Pawson, Mr. and Mrs. Witbeck, Mrs. 
Long, Mrs. Wilson, and Lela Waltrip have spent several 
day with daughters and friends.

The second academy class is very glad to announce 
its class officer, Miss Berger. At the time of organization 
the following officers were elected: President, Marian 
Jane Robison; Vice President, Louise Land; Secretary and 
Treasurer, Thelma Walker. Although you have not 
heard much about our class, it will not be long until you 
do as we are a class full of "pep!" 

The Indiana Club had a picnic at Nichols Park Octo- 
ber 30. An unusually good picnic supper was enjoyed 
around a camp-fire. 

The Third Preps are glad to welcome Miss MacCoy as 
their class officer. The results of their election are: 
President, Nora Alexander; Vice President, Mary Fowler; 
Secretary, Ruby Baxter; and Treasurer, Jane Parkison. 
On November 2, the class enjoyed a masquerade party 
given by Mamie Kennedy at her home. The following 
Saturday the Fourth Preps entertained them at the home 
of Lena Johnson. A waffle breakfast at the Peacock Inn 
given by Miss MacCoy on November 16, was the latest 
of their social functions. 

Miss Mary Anderson gave a delightfully informal tea 
for those of third floor Harker on Monday, November 16. 

The Seniors cooked a sumptuous meal for themselves 
in the new students' kitchen Wednesday evening, Novem- 
ber 18. Fried chicken, combination salad, mashed po- 
tatoes, sweet potatoes, cake, and ice cream were a few 
of the things prepared. 

The German Club held its first meeting November 18. 

During the last month try-outs have been held for 
the College and Academy Glee Clubs. We should have 
good lively music for every student event with two such 
promising organizations. 


A national convention of the Inter-Collegiate Prohi- 
bition Association is to he held at Topeka, Kansas, Decem-

From the items sent to the office by this association, we

dealing with the liquor problem under the department of 
Economics and Sociology. The University of Southern 
California and Oregon Agriculture College are among the 
latest to adopt this plan. 

The standard of the Agricultural College of the Uni- 
versity of Illinois has been raised so much that over three

According to press reports, British colleges are hard 
hit by the war, Cambridge having only 1,5 00 students 
against 3,500 last year, and the other universities being 
diminished in proportion. Belgium students are flock-

is sendng a car load of clothng in response to a plea for 


The first of the informal students recitals was given 
Wednesday, November 18th in Expression Hall by second 
semester students of last year and this semester's begin- 
ning students. There will be several of these student re- 
citals given each month, to which all are invited. They 
are not in the nature of a formal program, but are simply 
the exhibition of what is accomplished in private lessons, 
in the establishment of elements of expression, showing 
the progress of the students. 

Miss Glecker is ready to announce that if the interest 
displayed is sufficient, a dramatic club will be organized 
in a short time. It will not be a departmental club, and 
is open to any one interested. The membership is to be 
chosen by two try-outs, which are to take place the first 
week after the Christmas holidays. A committee of the 
faculty will act as judges at the try-outs. The number of 
members to be chosen from the applicants and the nature 
of the try-outs will be announced later. The club will 
not be an independent organization, but will come under 
the Students' Association and have student officers. Miss

Gleckler should like to see and talk with all those inter- 
ested as soon as possible. 

Much interest has been shown in conversation among 
the girls themselves, for the beginning of a course in par- 
liamentary usage. Miss Gleckler should like to have this 
interest chrystalized in actual application and will all those 
who wish to take this course please see me Miss Gleekler 
before Thanksgiving, so that the necessary supplies and 
materials may be obtained in time to begin the class at the 
first of next semester. 


On Saturday evening, November 7, the Misses Walk- 
er, Leicht, and Ames were hostesses to the girls of the 
Home Economics department at a very informal party in 
the Domestic Science room. The time was spent in blow- 
ing soap bubbles, making candy, popping corn and making 
it into balls. During the evening it was suggested that a 
Home Economics club be organized for the purpose of 
studying certain topics which are of special interest and 
which could not be taken up in the various classes. The 
consumers' league and the pure food laws were mentioned 
as being suitable subjects. 

On Friday evening the girls met to organize this club 
and the following officers were chosen for the coming- 

Advisors — Misses Walker, Leicht, and Ames. 

President — Wilma Cox. 

Vice-President — Winnifred Burmeister. 

Secretary-Treasurer — Anna Moore. 

Program Committee — Hazel Kinnear, Grace Miles, 
Madeline Land. 


Mr Knopf has her picture, 'The Pine Woods" on ex-

being held at the Chicago Art Institute. This is the most 
important exhibition held in Chicago during the year and 
it is an honor to be included among the exhibitors. 

Dorothy Virgin, Ruth Young, Genevieve Meyers, 
Zella Rishel and Genevieve Spiece have recently enrolled 
in various art classes. 

Miss Knopf spent the week end, 14-15 in Chicago, 
seeing the American Exhibition and other exhibits in 
smaller galleries. 


The Missouri Club appears on the scene this year, 
fewer in number but with just as much energy and push as 
ever. The new girls are a lively bunch and show great 
promise of keeping up the Missouri standard both in work 
and play. 

Our officers are as follows: Marie Johnson, presi- 
dent; Alma Mitchell, treasurer; Edna Robb, reporter. 

The ten of us enjoyed a table party in the dining room 
Thursday night November 19th. The black and yellow 
and the Missouri mule were much in evidence. Just 
watch us. 


The chapel hour Nov. 3, was a time of rejoicing when 
Dr. Harker made announcement of two valuable addi- 
tions to the endowment fund. A gift of one thousand 
dollars was given by some friend in Jacksonville who 
withheld her name. With his characteristic twinkle in 
his eye Dr. Harker waited for the applause to cease only 
to add that he had had another happy surprise. Ten 
thousand dollars has been given to establish an endowment 
fund in memory of Nellie Beatrice Jarman by her aged 
father of Onargo, 111. The applause which followed 
showed with what hearty co-operation the girls will enter 
the next campaign. As never before the old chart seemed 

Page Twenty-five 

®f>e College Greeting* 

a thing of the past. How anxiously we will watch to see 
the squares marked off on a new one! 



Payments to this fund continue in a very gratifying 
way. Since the last report in May 355 subscribers have 
paid in $24,816.23, making the total amount now paid 
$135,230.38, and the balance remaining unpaid only 

Of the 1226 subscribers to this fund, 561 have now 
paid in full. The Finance Committee hope that the 
friends who have not yet made their first or second pay- 
ments will now respond promptly. It is also hoped that 
all the subscribers will plan definitely to make full payment 
by next June, which is the final date for the settlement of 
the fund. 


The question was raised in the last issue of the Greet- 
ings concerning an annual for this year. It seems that the 
Juniors had been quietly making plans for the publica- 
tion of the 'illiwoco" for this year and asked permission 
to do so. After earnest consideration the Heads of De- 
partments decided that it is not advisable to publish an 
annual this year for two reasons: First, "There is undue 
pressure of work laid upon a few students which of neces- 
sity affects the more serious work of the college; second, 
the expense involved is heavy and should not be under- 
taken by the students two years in succession. ,, All of us, 
sity affects the more serious work of the college; second, 
a decision, but are ready to abide by whatever is for the 
greater advancement of the school and its work. 


Eureka College Pegasus has a fine plan for putting 
class spirit to good use in giving different classes a chance 
to edit one of its numbers. Surely class enthusiasm will 
be well spent in the competition for the best number.
